Annual Picnic & Open House (Friends Only)

July 16, 2016 (All day)

Please join us for the annual open house and picnic! After a short business meeting, we will enjoy a fascinating talk about sharks given by post-doctoral researcher Aaron Carlisle. Steve Palumbi will open his lab for tours so you can meet his undergraduate interns and hear about what they will be working on for the summer. Bill Gilly will be offering his famous squid dissection activity – kids love it!

This will be followed by lunch behind Agassiz with some of the HMS faculty and students.
